Iran Hints at Extension of Nuclear Talks

Iran nuclear talks might be extended if disagreements over remaining issues cannot be resolved by 24 November deadline, Reuters quoted an Iranian senior nuclear negotiator as saying on Friday. This is the first hint that an extension was being contemplated.

“Iran and the P5+1 are very serious on resolving the remaining disputes until November… but everything including an extension is possible if we cannot reach an agreement,” said Abbas Araqchi, Iran’s deputy foreign minister and top nuclear negotiator. (Reuters, 10 October)

Top diplomats from Iran and six major powers will meet in Vienna next week to work on a comprehensive deal ahead of November deadline.
